Bluebird Health is a psychiatric clinic serving adolescents and adults. We offer treatment for general psychiatric problems such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma-related problems. We also offer specialized treatment in addictions, as Dr Berner has completed a fellowship in addiction medicine.
We strive to offer respectful, nonjudgemental treatment for anyone seeking assistance with mental health struggles. While we use medication as a part of treatment for many patients, we recognize that it is only part of the solution in our journeys towards greater wholeness.
